Oracel database consolidation criteria

Hello there!
I am trying to put together a list with criteria which are considered important
for consolidating Oracle Database Servers.
If someone can write something here it will be very helpful.
thanks you very much

Short list:
Licensing cost
Impact on backup and recovery
Hardware downtime
Versioning of Oracle binaries
Security
Stability
Performance

I would add the use to which applications on the databases are put,
although that could be subsets of performance or security. Some apps
have strange requirements (for example, have to be in particular
schemata or absurd grants), and some things may not play well with
others (such as DSS and OLTP systems, or just about anything on
Windows). In addition, some users may have different expectations - a
DSS user may be more flexible than an emergency services dispatcher.

Tune OS and I/O subsystem to the needs of Oracle database.

Separate application tier from database tier. (Many vendors default to
having the app's 'middle tier' on the database server, results in tuning
compromise).

Merge databases by using schemas effectively.
